Former Acting AG Sally Yates Endorses Joe Biden

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports:

Sally Quillian Yates doesn’t dabble in elected politics often. Though she’s an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump, rarely has the former federal prosecutor waded into the messier machinery of campaign maneuvering.

“At its core, I’m supporting Joe Biden because I trust him. I trust his judgment, and his character,” she told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I trust him to make decisions for the right reasons, and to put our country’s interest first and to unite us rather than divide us.”

Yates became an icon to many Democrats when, as the Acting U.S. Attorney General in the early days of Trump’s administration, she ordered the Justice Department not to defend the Republican’s immigration policy in court. Trump fired her hours later.
